A sickening video has emerged on social media this week showing two white students at a North Carolina high school spewing racial epithets as part of a hateful tirade targeting African-Americans.
The cellphone recording begins with a pair of shirtless teenage boys, who have since been identified as students at Northwest Guilford High School in Greensboro, repeatedly saying the ‘N-word’ and suggesting that black people should be returned to a state of slavery and lynched.
In the course of the 44-second foul-mouthed rant, the teens take turns spewing words of hate and some of the worst racist stereotypes.
There two white students at Northwest Guilford High School in North Carolina were shown on video unleashing a foul-mouthed racist tirade directed at African-Americans
In the 44-second clip, the shirtless duo talk about their desire to put black people ‘back in the fields’ and lynching them all
‘All these f***ing n*****s, dude, they’re all f***ing annoying,’ one says. ‘I think we should just f***ing lynch them all, man.’
‘Send them to the back of the motherf***ing bus, put them b****es back in the field and teach them a f***ing lesson,’ his schoolmate continues while shoving his hand inside the front of his shorts.
The duo them accuse African-Americans of being hypocrites for espousing Christian values while also being fans of rap music.
‘They’d be riding Tupac’s d*** harder than they’d be riding Jesus’s d***, then they wanna come out here preaching on us when they’re just acting like a bunch of hoodrat n*****s,’ one of the teens declares.

The video concludes with this student challenging black people, whom he calls by the N-word, to come at him and vows to put them ‘back in the field’
His companion then expresses outrage at the thought that African-Americans would one day steal his wife, his job and his food stamps.
‘So come at me, n*****s, cause I’m gonna put you back on the field, you plow mother****ers,’ his friend sums up while looking directly into the camera as if challenging someone to a fight.
As of Tuesday afternoon, the clip has gone viral, drawing more than 3,200 views and counting on Facebook.
Guilford County Schools learned of the video’s existence over the weekend and contacted the National Conference for Community and Justice (NCCJ), a non-profit organization, to conduct sensitivity training for students and staff at Northwest Guilford High School on Monday.
